Beautifully striped wool mitts in fingerless or full coverage versions!
The Corrugated Mitts knit up easily in your favorite sturdy DK weight wool. These mitts are a great introduction to working with two colors. We knit ours in Classic DK Wool, and kits are available in four of our favorite color combinations.
Corrugated rib is often used as an edging stitch for stranded colorwork. We’ve kicked this simple 2×2 rib up a notch by making a full piece in this simple technique. Carrying the second color along on the inside creates an extra layer of warmth without getting too bulky. The traditional peasant thumbs lie flat and the stripes highlight the shaping beautifully.
The kit contains pattern and yarn for the Small size of either mittens or fingerless mitts – please purchase additional balls for Medium and Large sizes.
The project requires:
- one ball each of two colors (for Small size), OR
- two balls of each color (for Medium and Large sizes)
- US size 3 and US size 5 double pointed needles (or long circular needles for magic loop)
- stitch markers
The pattern is free (print or download) when you buy the yarn for the project – just be sure to put it in your shopping cart!
(When buying a kit, remember to buy extra balls for the M or L sizes.)
